A divine halo of a hat! This Vintage 1930's Black Bandeau Picture Hat of Handwoven Straw is a gorgeous example of how a hat can create a beautiful aura framing the face. There are similar examples of this hat style in my 1934 Chicago Mail Order catalog, but this one really takes the cake! This one was hard to date because this style of hat has been coming in and out of style for decades but the horse hair lace ruffle, pleated ribbon edge and elastic hair band helped me date it to the 30's.

The fine black straw of this hat is beautifully handwoven with almost a fine linen surface texture. The crown is shallow and rounded with a wide slightly curved brim that graduates in size being smaller in the back, which shadows and halos the face. There is a straw bandeau that is shaped to fit the hat securely on your crown, lined and edged in black grosgrain ribbon. The fluffy stiff horsehair lace ruffle circles the hat crown and is interwoven with velvety ecru orange blossoms with orange centers. There is a magnificent pleated grosgrain ribbon ruffle around the brim, that is also often seen on the boater hats of the 30's and 40's. There is an attached elastic which helps holds the hat in place. The union tag is on the inner hatband and I notice I don't have a good picture of it here. (If you wish one let me know and I will re-photograph it.)

This fabulous and versatile picture hat would easily transform to dress up vintage styles in the 30's, 40's and 50's with it's ageless sophistication and swank! (h0120)

size 17" x 18" x 5"
bandeau 20 1/2"-21"
condition excellent (I see no flaws)

My apologies to my International Customers, because of the size this hat, it can only be sent Priority Mail and not the cheaper First Class rate of $16.95 to $18.95 that I usually charge for my hats!
